Bob Marley popularized both the dreadlock hairstyle and reggae music. Even though he passed away decades ago, his style still resonates with millions around the world. Whether you’re a fan of his music or his look, his style can still be seen in modern trends. Here are twenty of the best ideas for a Bob Marley inspired hairstyle.
The Patois Style
The Patois style emulates traditional the reggae singer’s look. The thick locs are divided in half and pulled back with a patterned headwrap. This look is classic and shows off Bob Marley’s roots.
The High Top
This style combines two eras of popular hair trends. To create it, part the top of the hair into an exaggerated mohawk and pull the sides back like a mullet. A modern, updated version of Bob Marley’s iconic hairstyle.
The Wild One
If you want to turn up the volume on Bob Marley’s hairstyle, try the wild one. Combining parts of the Patois style and the High Top, this style jumps from one era to another with ease. Create it by dividing the locs in half and pulling them back with a headwrap and pull the top unto an exaggerated mohawk.
The No Stress Style
This is a great style for summer or the beach. Gather your locs and pull them forward into a low ponytail and wrap a bandana around your head. This will give you a simple, low maintenance look that still pays homage to Bob Marley’s style.
The Curled Up Style
Dreadlocks don’t have to be straight, you can also use heat styling and rollers to to create bouncy curls. The deep, chocolate brown dreadlocks cascading down with soft curls looks exotic and modern. A great look that would ﬁt right in at any chic ticket.
